Ever since Grand Admiral Thrawn was announced for “Star Wars Rebels” Season 3, fans of the “Star Wars” Expanded Universe have eagerly anticipated the debut of the blue-skinned Imperial officer. In this new clip from the upcoming season, the Grand Admiral appears just in time to threaten Hera and Ezra’s undercover mission — with his notorious and meticulous interest in alien cultures.
Grand Admiral Thrawn was created by Anthony Zahn in his novel “Star Wars: Heir to the Empire,” published in 1991. Zahn’s first three “Star Wars” novels eventually became known as the Thrawn Trilogy by fans and formed the cornerstone of what is now considered the “Star Wars Legends” universe. How closely these legends adhere to what we will see of the Grand Admiral in future episodes of “Star Wars Rebels” remains to be seen.
In “Star Wars Rebels,” Thrawn will be voiced by Lars Mikkelsen, brother of “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” star Mads Mikkelsen. He’ll be tasked with tracking down and crushing the Ghost crew and the budding Rebellion when the show returns.
“Star Wars Rebels” Season 3 premieres September 24 on Disney XD.
